AFRAID TO LOVE Episode 17
“Okay.” she concurred.
“We’re here,” he announced grinning.
Purity raised her head. The car was in
front of a gate. A huge iron gate painted black. It was possible to see through the gate because it was like iron bars separated from one another.
She looked from her left to right, they were actually secluded among trees in one of New York’s most exclusive streets.
Jeremy honked the horn of the car. She watched as the gate opened
mechanically. She was awed by that. The little house close to the gate should belong to the security guard.
He had used a security camera to see Jeremy on the outside then pressed buttons on a remote to open the gate. 
She’d seen something like that but didn’t know Jeremy had one. He was stinkingly rich.
She noticed he wasn’t proud of it. She
that had little compared to him was
always blabbing about her father’s
wealth.
As they drove past the gate, she saw two golden images of arced angels on both sides of the gate. The gate shut the same way it opened. 
Light shown from their eyes, electric bulbs. The compound was wide and spacious. The mansion stood at
the face end of the compound. 
It was really huge, painted white and blue. It had turrets, a order, balconies, screened-in front porch.
Jeremy drove to the garage. There were already four different cars parked. His vehicle joined them. He died the engine down and opened his door, closed it behind him. 
He went to the other side, for Purity. He pushed the door open and helped her down. Her stilleto touched the
inter locked brick ground making
clanking noises as she walked. 
She fed her eyes once more. The compound smelt of money. She could see a gazebo at a garden, right from the mansion they were heading to. 
In the middle was a pool. Next to it were waters flying in the air, water falls. A little round pole situated
there. 
It watered the carpet grass in that
area and alone gave beauty to the
premises. Trees were planted a little
farther from the grasses and pool.
Their branches danced to the tune of the night’s cool breeze. Electric bulbs around the branches, filling it with exceptional beauty. 
That night, the moon was full which added to its florescence. Purity
was humbled by what she saw.
As they got to the front door, Jeremy
pressed numbers on a key pad hung by the side of the door.
He really didn’t have to use the bell,
Purity thought. It was his home. 
The door steps were decorated with Hibiscus and rose flowers. The scent filled the air, she sniffed in some.
Jeremy watched her while waiting for the door to unlock itself. He smiled.
“Do you like what you see?”
She was jolted back to reality. “Um…
yeah. I’m impressed. You’ve got a nice
place.” she complimented.

“You should be thanking my dad.”
A light sound came from the door and
Jeremy turned the door knob. He pushed the door open. 
“After you,” he gestured.
She obediently walked in. She was
greeted by a flight of stairs. The stair
case was grand. The floor was marble.
She heard some clanking behind her and seconds later, Jeremy was beside her.
He held out his arm, “Lets go.”
She took it and they began ascending the stairs together. Everything looked opulent from the gleaming marble floors covered in beautiful throw rugs to the thin light and transparent curtains billowing like mist on the walls.
The furnishing were old but had a story to tell, a very fascinating one. They had to be antiques with what looked like hand carved workmanship.
Each area of the room melting into the the beauty of the next with some delicate settees next to more heavy book cases and fire place that melted with the walls that appeared to be actually used.
